    ^no

    Was a bit optimistic these might fit #stancenationyolo

    Without tyres is the 10 inch rim and with is the 9.5 offsets I think are 25/35 which are apparently a gtr offset. These were on my jza80 so thought they may fit.

    Plenty of meat on the rear brakes whilst I was there. Off to give her her first wash.

    Agree^ it's only because I had them.

    Gave it a good clean and pulled the aerotop out.

    List stands at current:

    Electronics
    - work out dash temp gauge malfunction - broadtune
    - install a water temp gauge as hidden as possible - broadtune
    - test all ecu senders for correct voltages / signals - broadtune

    Mechanical:
    - check torque of headstuds and possibly replace one by one with arps, still researching
    - bleed brakes
    - Subaru top end cleaner
    - plugs
    - fuel filter

    Aesthetics
    - front bumper plastic repair and paint
    - full detail, cut n polish etc.
    - wheels reconditioned
    - seatbelt holders replaced fix dash
    - repaint mirror plastics

    Gratuitous clean shots, few more dents than I realised, just little stuff, will fix eventually if it annoys me enough

    Factory temp gauge is fine, they don't run hot before a BHG.

    if you want extra info (ecu runs dedicated temp sender) get a TOYOBD1 https://www.facebook.com/groups/1505898572959292/

    It's probably in need of full service, not much more work to pull the head, surface, studs and new head gasket

    replace all hoses http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/261951083557

    make sure you only run the toyota red coolant most other coolants corrode the fuck out of the 7m head

    If you want fasts but original look garret do a replacement center section for the diesel CT-26 turbo that will take modified stock housings and a 35R turbine and compressor

    Fit a large fuck off transcooler and mild shift kit / shim accumulators

    My mate “He who can weld” has a mint burgundy one of these. Almost exactly the same as this other than it having 656rwhp 1JZ/2JZ combo. So 80’s cool.

    My first one had the sawblades sections painted body colour and then the surfaces polished to a mirror finished then clear coated.

    Edit: found a pic, it's shitter than shit but should give an idea, I was sure I had better pics floating around...
